Bloomberg’s role-playing workshops convince the public to accept self-guided police drones equipped with microphones

Bloomberg is spending six million dollars on a “Mayors Challenge” that will put microphones in police drones.

According to an article in WPFL 89.3, Bloomberg Philanthropies wants the Louisville Kentucky Police Department to send out self-guided aerial drones equipped with ShotSpotter microphones across the city.

“The city will spend six months testing and refining the drone proposal. In October, four cities will win $1 million to continue the programs, while one grand prize winner will get $5 million from Bloomberg Philanthropies.”

Before I go any further I need to address the proverbial elephant in the room.

For more than a decade Bloomberg Philanthropies has donated millions of dollars to turn police departments into mini-spy centers. Bloomberg’s website has an entire section devoted to law enforcement donations. The Daily Caller’s article “Law Enforcement For Hire” claims that Bloomberg has paid $6 million to State Attorneys to help resist President Trump.

Is it any wonder that Bloomberg is spending millions trying to convince Americans that police drones equipped with microphones is a good thing?

Bloomberg’s Mayors Challenge is not focused on preserving our privacy but is instead focused on changing the public’s opinion about police surveillance.

“That sort of bold, creative thinking is what we look for in this competition. And the replicability of it, if it’s successful is very exciting,” Katie Appel Duda of Bloomberg Philanthropies said. “At the end of the day, this is all about learning to make these ideas bigger, stronger and more poised for impact for citizens.”

Bloomberg got one thing right, equipping police drones with microphones will have a strong impact on citizens. Just imagine a future where police use drones to secretly listen to public conversations all in the name of public safety.
